    The door on the right has a blue diamond shape over the top, the door on the left has a green crescent.

    Which door do you choose?

    If you choose the right door (blue diamond) turn to page 66

    If you choose the left door (green crescent) turn to page 198

    If you decide to wait in the hallway for your recently lost blink lynx, turn to page 99."

    (after a moments thought with no clues noted as to which symbol to choose you take a guess of the left door and turn to page 198)



    "You enter the door with the green crescent and it immediately shuts behind you locked. Suddenly an interdementional nightmare hound jumps at your throat, clenching your throat until all oxygen is cut off and what was once your life...fades all around you.

    Your adventure is now over."
    dare I say it, that such a happenstance is simply a preparation for real life?

    "On your way to work, driving safely within the speed limit, using your turn signals, in a vehicle with all legal protection devices and completely up to code, a dump truck runs through the railing of the highway above you and crashes atop your car. You immediately die... you and the 15 people driving near you. Your life is over. Hope your family had funeral insurance."

    or

    "After living a good life, helping your fellow man, sacrificing for those you love, and being an epitome of goodness, beloved by everyone who knew you, despite your best efforts to find the truth and follow it, you die and find that you are burning in hell because you didn't happen to hold the right beliefs. Nice try. Too bad reincarnation is not real and there will be no end to your torment. But at least you'll have good company, being near Ghandi and Mother Teresa in the Eternal Fire."

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I loved cyoa! This one always scared the crap out of me:



    I bought a used one within the last few years and my daughter got the good ending first or second try. (Of course she did, I don't think I ever did!)

    Other dorks love them too: http://www.seanmichaelragan.com/img/...ockoutline.png

    Lol, reminds me of the mythical “lost chapters” of Chose your own Adventure

    "...turn to page 173 if you choose to keep it real....."Unfortunately this is one of those instances where keeping it real goes wrong. You tell your boss and landlady what you "really think" of them and how things really should be run from now on.

    However instead of admiring your boldness, eloquence and initiative, you instead get fired and are immediately thrown out on the street from your flat

    As you drag your luggage tears blur your vision as you cross the crosswalk and a dump truck suddenly runs you over sending you into shock and cardiac arrest.

    Your adventure is now over."

    Although I've never read these books (before my time, I guess), I'm currently playing a visual novel - a genre which is pretty similar in structure!
